Psalms 37:7 -- On Stress Free Waiting

"Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass."
Psalms 37:7

This is good advice, to be able to rest/be calm and wait for the Lord.  I don't think that it means inaction... we should still be "anxiously engaged" in doing the right things, but I don't think that anxiously means actually stressed out either.  We can have confidence in the Lord, and know that there is no need to freak out... or fret. :)

Today, let's not worry about the people who are doing evil, or prospering by doing wrong.  Let's be calm and rest in the Lord, waiting for him, and for his plan to be brought to fruition.  Everything will work out in the end, and we won't need to fret ourselves about anyone else, because God will make it all right, and help us all to get the very best ending that we can possibly get.  Let's just chill a little, and work on being the best people we can be, and helping the people around us.  God will take care of the things that we can't possibly control, and likely would kind of muck up even if we could.  We don't have to hang on to that anxiety.
